“You MUST eat a dessert here. #1 restaurant in Phi Phi for sure”
Reviewed December 27, 2012 via mobile

Seriously, 3rd night in a row for dessert. Profiteroles and choc mousse amazing, but we have learned to expect amazing dessert. It's like they have hired some freak dessert maker - it comes out 5 mins after you order and looks amazing. Even the bottled water starts to taste good when you're there. Excellent service and equal best dessert I've ever paid for.

“OMG desserts”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

Complementary bruschetta was very tasty. Calamari risotto - amazing and huge for an appetiser and came with baguette. Huge portion sizes for dinner - 5 spice duck was great but a bit overspiced (would like to appreciate duck more) and mash was amazing. Baked fish in red wine sauce was probably not as high quality fish as expected (was king mackerel, a bit chickeny) but it was a big fish steak and wasn't over priced and sauce, veggies and tagliatelle (home made with parmesan) was excellent. Special Christmas desert menu - chocolate quenelles were absolutely to kill for, as was the amaretto tiramisu. Went back the next night for desert. Tried to go back the night after but must have been closed for a holiday break. Only concern was mai tai cocktail. Served in a pineapple it looked great but did not taste good. Quality of rum used was not good and mixer. proportions were a bit off. Would suggest to owner to investigate other rums and vodkas that are less well known than the stock standard, just as cheap and have better reviews of taste.
Recommend this restaurant 100%! Best on the island so far. Owner works very hard to please and this shows.

“Mouthwatering with a superb service!”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

The restaurant could have been in Paris or New York but it is on the small island of Ko Phi Phi. I have been in a lot of restaurants on Ko Phi Phi but this one is from another level. From the steak to the seafood, all absolutely delicious for a very, very decent price. Thanks and good luck! My score is well deserved, I rarely give the highest rating.

Great main foods with quick and friendly service made it a really enjoyable night. Multiple fans surrounded the place to keep the heat down. Best dessert I have in a very long time. Simply amazing

Very nice place with wooden thaï décoration, fountain, tree...

We had amazing cocktails with delicious thai curry. The crepe suzette at the end was the cherry on the cake!
